March 10, 2019 Worship

First Sunday of Lent

We hope you will join us for worship each week. Here is some information that you might like to have about this week’s worship service.

Scripture: Matthew 18:15-35 (p. 897-8, Pew Bible)

Focus Scripture – Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21-22)

Message: Forgiveness

Theme: Forgiveness means accepting the imbalance of justice and moving on with your own life.

Hymns We Will Sing:

  • HYMN #306   “Blest Be the Tie That Binds”     (DENNIS)
  • HYMN #529   “Draw Us in the Spirit’s Tether”   (UNION SEMINARY)
  • HYMN #754    “Help Us Accept Each Other”       (BARONITA)

Prayer of the Day: God, you have forgiven us a world of transgressions. Make us likewise gracious to those who are in debt to us, showing them the mercy which you offer to all. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
